Gwen Stefani portrait in pastel

It’s a true scientific fact that drawing from selfies is a nightmare. The angles are all weird and the resolution is usually bad, leaving the artist to make up details (like noses and jaws) as they go along. In my case, usually fluffing it up.

Still, I keep doing it. Guess it’s me all over. Stubborn. Wanting to do things the difficult way. But who can resist this gorgeous, glamorous candid snapshop… and that contrast!? Like she’s emerging from the darkness. Very film noir actually.

  1. Thank you, Captain Jill! As a big Gwen fan, I’ve seen her face since I was 11 years old – I just don’t think I’ve quite got it there. But is was fun to do and different from how I usually draw. Thanks again!
